A Road of My Own

Today I rode a few miles east, then 17 miles south into the wind so I would have the wind at my back on the way home. When I got back up to new US 24, I bypassed the road closed barriers, and took a cruise on the new highway.

Being a good cyclist, I obeyed the road signs.

The ribbon of highway stretching toward Woodburn. Once this section of highway opens, I shall claim the two-lane 24 which will be abandoned as a US Route, but will still be open for travel. The road follows the Maumee River closely, so it is unusual for a road around here - it has curves.


Hope you got out today.

Happy riding!

That must have been great...a road all to yourself. It really is no excuse, but I didn't get out up here today as it rained all day. That is a good thing.

That would have been fun to have that road all to one's self, talk about "Open Road" !

Very nice to have a road to yourself. And I hope you have the old one mostly to yourself when the new one opens.

Ahh, it is refreshing to find a cyclist that obeys the speed limit! Good for you!

Looks like a lot of fun, having a brand new road all to yourself!
